Who better to do something really unique with your maternity or baby photos?

Here are the rough details about Sarah Jane Silvers (we’re real y’all)

Wichita Doula: What is your origin story as a photographer?

SJS: I was given a 35 mm Pentax camera when I was 16. I fell in love immediately. I was afraid of what everyone would think, and I didn’t think about going pro for fear of criticism – and then I decided to do it for myself instead.

WD: Was it hard to start a business or did it just start happening? Is there anything about it that surprises you?

SJS: It’s hard to start anything when you feel like the world is judging you.

I had to take a break for a month or two because my competitiveness got the better of me. I had to refocus on what I really wanted out of it and do that. I discovered the competitive mindset community and ran from there.

Every day is a surprise. It always amazes me that people like my work and keep booking me. I am in complete awe of the beautiful souls I have met and befriended so far and the magic we have created. Most of all I am surprised that I am here. Sometimes I feel like I’m not good enough but then I remember running around with my Pentax, dreaming of becoming the person I am now and I’m proud.

WD: What is your favorite thing to do when doing maternity shoots?

SJS: Capturing women in their full form. A woman with a child has many truths and beauties. This is a fleeting time and one that must be captured well and faithfully.
